This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.
The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

Ukraine: military endangering civilians by locating forces in residential areas - new research
https://www.amnesty.org.uk/press-releases/ukraine-military-endangering-civilians-locating-forces-residential-areas-new

Translation: Ukraine defends cities from Russian attacks instead of abandoning them. This results in Russians hitting those cities with artillery barrages. Somehow this is Ukraine's fault.

And with one article, Amnesty International became a "puppet" of the Kremlin...

Ukraine should've just let Russia run roughshod over them, as is proper.

Don't forget to add the Associated Press to your list of puppets.  Their own reporters pretty much confirmed everything in Amnesty's report:

In other news a home owner recently encouraged violent theft by allowing themselves to be beaten up by a burglar breaking into their house.

What AI doesn't understand is that Ukraine is damned if they do, but double-damned if they don't.

Yes, it's true that deploying in a city close to civilians will put them in harms way, but if they don't deploy in the city, the russians will shell civilians anyway (as they are already doing everywhere else) as well as leaving them defenseless against raping, murdering and kidnapping.

It is moronic to more or less accuse Ukraine to use civilians as human shields because that would assume russians care.

Speaking of puppets, where's Zelensky been lately?  Haven't seen too much of him in the news recently.  I suppose he's resting up from that positively exhausting Vogue fashion photo shoot.  Good article.  It reminded me of that time Churchill took a vacation from defending Britain to go down and model men's beachwear at El Alamein for the fashion season of '42.

You don't have to be a puppet of the Kremlin to be an idiot. What the fuck were the Ukrainians supposed to do? Leave all urban areas completely undefended?

I dunno, maybe they could evacuate the civilian buildings around their defensive emplacements to give the people that they are ostensibly defending half a chance?

Just tossing that out there.
